Who enrolled in this school of hard knocks. I don’t give a shit how many certificates you wave in front of me? Do you know? What your saying is true really? Prove it.
Okay. Okay. I’ll get to proving.
Let me ask you? Do you think as hard as it feels to you? That our Mamas didn’t feel it harder? Before and after the fact we came along to help carry the loads. Of bullshit folks get saying about us? Cicely Tyson said in the help. And I quote. An ebony woman teaching a white girl how to see it. Showing her how to harness the situation holding the ears of the children while braiding the hair and the mind to undo it. Yeah.
Here are her words to us all. Listen. Pay close attention. When color don’t really matter? You can hear god speak through everyone. Wise words spoken to those with keen ears using the mind to put it all together. Who’s who in this chicken soup for the soul that’s lost all the salt? Bland. Tasteless creations. Some have to much and unwilling to share. Some have to little and treasures unshared. Sharing. Such a weary task to master. Am I gonna believe all them bad things them fools say about me today? She’s right. Stay constant so the ship can stay balanced. Folks gone crazy done forgot they raisins. Raisin. Raising. Bran cereal. Constipated I imagine? Think they the shit. and they ripe full of it! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🥰
Now. Can you even follow a lady who color ain’t yella. Who teaches the children about learning. About the fools we call ourselves cuz of color issue? In the content of this chicken soup? We are all the ingredients of the recipe. No. Exclusions aloud. Like grow up people.
Got to ask yourself this question: “Am I gonna believe all them bad things them fools say about me today?” You hear me? “Am I gonna believe all them bad things them fools say about me today? You hear me today?” All right? As for your mama, she didn’t pick her life. It picked her. But you, you’re gonna do something big with yours. You wait and see.
